‘The Stress Of House Repairs Is Ruining My Sex Life’

In the latest Confessions roundup, 15 parents vent about in-laws, bills, potty training, and more.

by Emma Coburn

Do a renovation, they said. It’ll be easy, they said. Actually, we’ve never heard someone say that about a renovation, but still... they’re somehow always ten times more complicated than you think they’ll be. So it makes sense the stress would spill over into the bedroom, like it did for one reader. Other topics in the Scary Mommy Confessional this week range from potty training and guy friends with awkward crushes to the endless sicknesses that are somehow still going strong. Read on for the full roundup.
